I have dined here several times and not once has my experience been anything but perfect. Atmosphere, service, food, all excellent. Last night my son had their pumpkin ravioli which was to die for. Their fish and chips is perfect with the batter being just right, neither too thick nor too thin. The ambience is restful making for a very... More

I went to Buon Appetito for the first time in July and I was very happy with the quality. The antipasto is large and will feed two for lunch or make a great appetizer for a group of fThe pizza is cooked in a wood oven leaving it crispy and a little smoky. I was disappointed with the "wild" mushroom... More

I've eaten at Buon Appetito a number of times and am always very pleased with the taste, quality, and serving size of the food presented. I favor the Stonington scallops with fig sauce over the gorgonzola polenta with zucchini chips. Yum! I always have trouble getting past this item on the menu. My family gravitates toward the veal or eggplant... More

The short ribs are so tender and well seasoned. The best my daughter ever had. The grilled scallops were cooked perfectly and the side of Gorgonzola polenta was delicious. My husband had the seafood special pasta dish and all of the seafood was fresh, cooked to perfection and the sauce a light but spicy tomato. You have to try the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner on a Wed. evening so the place was not too crowded. Our waiter was so kind and the dinner delicious. I love salmon and this was cooked just right, though I did not care too much for the apple stuff served with it. The shrimp dish was enjoyed by my husband who... More

Recently visited Buon Appetito and was a little taken back by the over involvement of the management during a rush dinner time. It wasn't hard to notice the drama they were casting on their employees. On three different occasions, just during my meal, there were obvious displays of ridicule and scolding by these management figures toward their hard working employees.... More

I don't get all the rave reviews. My husband and I had dinner here in July 2014. I ordered the eggplant parm and he had the linguine w/clam sauce. Average at best. Eggplant was stringy and undercooked in some spots.The staff is very nice and attentive tho. The mgr or owner, whichever he is, came around to the tables to... More

Words cannot express how wonderful this restaurant is! We were in town for a very large softball tournament. We stopped by first for lunch - three families, arriving at different times. Not only did the staff accommodate us and our separate orders, but they did so with a smile. After a long day at the field, we wanted to get... More
